reid does not want to fwe through tgo thr gyrations on gun policy because frankly he comes from nevada. harry reid has had a very high record from the nra, very high ranking from the nra. any of us who have been to nevada know that there is a very big gun culture there and the other surrounding states. frankly, the two senators from nevada and idaho where there is great gun culture have just as much votes as the two senators from california or from some other northeastern states. and i think it's important that the white house listen to some of these voices coming from some of the more rural areas like an idaho, like a nevada, because they vote, too. and we need to make them part of the debate. i've been very concerned to -- sorry. >> they'll clearly be listened to. that's not the point. the issue is how you build consensus for real gun -- >> have you seen folks from out west from the rural areas be part of the debates on the sunday shows? >> absolutely. ? i've seen a lot of urban mayor, but not the folks from the west. gr then you should listen up to what center joe manchin had to say

[ inaudible ] >> i love you back. last week, last week i had the honor of being sworn in for a second term as president of the united states. and during my inaugural address, i talked about how making progress on the defining challenges of our time doesn't require us to settle every debate or ignore every difference that we may h
, the numbers, yes, i'm sure they do no mystery why the president is in nevada, certainly want to paint that state blue as well what is your sense of it, can -- will congress come together in the math has changed enor mousily on immigration politics. ly be able to get his reforms through congress? >> reporter: we are hearing more optimism from both sides of congress today on the sunday talk shows than perhaps people have heard in a while and perhaps one reason, miguel, could be taking a look at the poll numbers. when you have a cnn/orc poll that was taken just a week before the president took office for his second term, it asked people what should you can the policy for immigration on illegal immigrants? what was interesting, half, 53% of people said there should be a plan to allow people to become citizens of the u.s., 43% were actually favoring deportation and border security, but if you look at the numbers from 2011, they were almost opposite at that point. we have seen public opinion shift on this in just two years. it may be one reason that we are hearing this renewed policy discus
more than 70% of the hispanic vote in november. as we speak, the president is en route to nevada. a state that he carried by more than six points over mitt romney despite an imploding economy there. any guesses who kept that state blue? the president is pitching a comprehensive immigration rewrite that may sound a lot like the senate plan that was unveiled yesterday. however, it will not sound identical. cnn's brianna keilar joins me from the white house now. so will the president propose something completely different than what the senate has already done, and is there a risk of confusing everyone? >> reporter: no, i don't think he'll propose something entirely different from what the senate has done. so far, ashleigh, the white house is welcoming the senate plan. we're expecting that the president will highlight a proposal that's actually been out for almost two years at this point. his blueprint for immigration reform. but when it was put out in 2011, it was seen much more as a statement, i think, ahead of the election more than a genuine push for immigration reform. he didn't
jersey as well as cash grants directly to storm victims. the bill now goes to the senate. >>> a nevada police officer is under a federal grand jury investigation after being caught on dash cam video kicking a man in the head who was in a diabetic shock. this happened in 2010. affiliate ksnv said the henderson, nevada, police sergeant was disciplined but did not lose his job and was not demoted and not charged. the victim settled his case with the city. >>> in money news samsung has hit a mobile milestone. the electronics giant said it has sold 100 million phones and tablets from its galaxy "s" series. the newest flagship of the series, the gal saxly s-3 has sold 40 million phones alone. >>> ice and snow makes travel difficult across many parts of the country. in louisiana dozens of accidents were reported and several roads closed because of freezing rain and low temperatures. chattanooga, tennessee, a car was crushed when a tree came crashing down because of strong winds. and in dallas, more than 170 flights were canceled due to freezing rain at destinations across the south. wintry we
. because miguel marquez is there. he is at the biggest gun range in nevada. huge, miguel, huge announcement today from the president. what reaction are you getting from gun advocates there? >> reporter: it is a huge gun range, a huge reaction here across nevada. there is the giant shot show happening in the state as well. so the state is packed with everybody in the trade right now, everybody focused on what the president is saying. i'm joined by mike heck, the general manager here at the range 702. you heard what the president said today. and your reaction is what? >> well, first, i found it a bit vague. waiting for what the 23 executive orders actually say. much of it, you could argue, is common sense. who would be against background checks? that's stuff we already do. really won't change business in that aspect for us. the assault weapons, high capacity magazines, we have to see what it says in black and white. >> reporter: and see where it goes legislatively. that has to be done by legislation. in the retail end, in the immediate future, you probably won't see a big change. i want to wa
the imintegration issue ta may have been their undoing. voters from nevada to florida told cnn suggests like self-deportation by mitt romney hurt the republicans' chances at the white house. >> there are a lot of the latinos that want obama to win so that they won't be deported back to their country. >> they couldn't get elected this year, couldn't get elected today but we are going to have a conversation about this. if we don't do better with hispanics we are going to be out of the white house forever. >> forever is a long time. and if republicans expect to rally for the presidency in 2016, reyes says the magic number is 35. >> the magic number that any candidate needs in order to win the president i is 35% of latino voters because these days, the fact is, owing to demographics, the road to the white house goes through latino neighborhoods. this also has to do with the fact that they tend to be in many of the most important swing states like nevada, colorado, florida. so any candidate or party who hopes to compete and be relevant nationally must at least meet that threshold number. >> in 2012, g
who is taking a wait and see attitude. because nevada is a hunting state. >> you're absolutely right about that. maria, if individual states pass these gun control laws and other states don't, will it make any difference? >> it will make the state-based laws a lot less effective. the reason why some of these gun control laws have been ineffective and d.c. is one of those areas where there are strict gun control laws, but our d.c. kids are gunned down every single day and the reason for that, carol, is that there is no federal legislation that covers all states, so what happens, criminals go across the border to virginia where the gun control laws are very, very lax, and that is buy this time is very different. those 20 children that died in newtown, i think really marked an era of real discussion of americans really looking inward to see what can be done, yes it will be difficult, yes, it will be difficult to bring people together but i think that something will happen at the federal level. what that is, i think remains to be seen. >> it could be very little, right tomorrow, vice pre
owner. he's from the gun rights state of nevada. he has been very cautious saying that the senate should be cautious, but my understanding from talking to a number of sources is that he's speaking for himself but he's also speaking from the perspective of political reality, that there are a number of people in his caucus who would potentially really get slammed for supporting anything. so that's why he wants to take it slow. he doesn't want his people to walk the plank and suddenly not be the senate majority, lose the majority. but the other thing i think is really important to keep in mind is just how different this is. kind of taking it up to 5,000 or 10,000 feet. i cannot tell you how many times after so many of these tragedies, after one of their own gabby giffords was shot, calling up senate democratic sources saying, are you going to do anything? nope. nothing's changed. after aurora, nope, nothing's changed. n newtown changed the dialogue, the decision at the white house and here in congress by some to put this issue, again, which was very, very difficult. for ten years democrats
will give a speech in las vegas, nevada. he was supposed to outline his own plan for immigration, but now he's going to take these eight senators' plan for immigration and say he's on board. why doesn't he just present his own plan, maria? >> well, i actually think it's smart of the white house to take the plan of the gang of eight in the senate and say that the president supports it. there will be some differences. the white house has outlined some of the differences the president will talk about today. we know that he wants, perhaps, a smoother and easier way path to citizenship. i think that's smart, too, because if you can look at the plan from the white house and then take the plan from the senators, there's some differences there. there is a place to negotiate. there is a place -- a place to meet in the middle. because this is still very much an uphill battle. i think that you have senators that understand what needs to be done. and they have been -- they have been speaking very forthrightly and smartly, i think. there are still a lot of republicans both in the house and in the senate
